My friends Jessica and Joe are getting married in September, so it has been lots of fun to bounce ideas off of each other in the planning process. The other day, I was feeling particularly stressed out and I was talking to Jess and she reminded me of the importance of date night. But it was the way she said it that stood out, “we have a date night once a week, where it is just the 2 of us and we don’t talk about the wedding”. See, we have a lot on our social calendar these days, so I had mistakenly thought that we had date night. But, the one on one time without talking about the wedding has been seriously lacking.
SO, last night I made dinner (spaghetti and garlic crescent rolls) and we sat and talked and laughed and had a really nice time. We had planned to watch a movie, but by the time we were done eating, we decided to lay down for a minute and before we knew it, it was 10pm!! Whoops! I will say, dinner and a nap is about the best date night I could have asked for!!
